Bout of Books

Bout of Books … I’m in!

So I didn’t participate in the Read-a-Thon. Honestly, that kind of stuff just isn’t for me. However, I kept seeing the Bout of Books and didn’t really know what it was about. But when I read about it, I was intrigued. It seems like a more laid back event that I could participate in easily. So I’m signing up.

I don’t really want to be too specific in my goals. I intend on finishing the book I’m currently reading, Envy by Gregg Olsen. I would also like to finish one other book, yet to be determined, but I won’t be disappointed if I don’t make it. I hope to read at least 30 minutes per day. (I would say more but I’ve got a lot going on in my personal life … READ HERE … and I don’t want to commit to too much right now.)

I have yet to decide how I will be keeping track of what I read this coming week. Whether I will post individual daily posts to update my reading or if I will keep it all in one sticky post. But you will obviously be seeing daily updates. Oh and I will also be updating as I can on Twitter too, so find me there (@tarataylor7585).

That’s all I’ve got for right now. I look forward to participating and happy reading!!!

Sunday Wrap-Up

Sunday Wrap-Up, October 23, 2011

Well it’s been very quiet here at the blog the last couple of weeks. I’ve just had other things on my mind lately.

First of all, I’ve been really struggling with that pesky thing called … morning sickness 🙂 It’s still very early on, but I can’t keep it to myself anymore! I had to tell! I went to the doctor on 10/17 … we have a due date of June 4, 2012. (Told you, it’s still very early). I go back to the doctor on 11/14 and I can’t wait! So excited!

So when I haven’t been stuck on the couch or in bed trying my hardest not to move a muscle, I’ve been asleep. So my reading has definitely suffered. I haven’t finished a book since October 8th. I picked up a James Patterson (who is my go-to author when I need something mindless) and honestly couldn’t get into the book. So then I just didn’t read, at all, for like 5 days straight. Then I got the notification that I had Gregg Olsen’s “Envy” on hold at the library. I immediately went to get it and started it and then another 4 days went by before I picked it up again. I will finish this book because now I’m far enough in that I’m interested to see what unfolds, but it might take a while because my mind seems to be elsewhere. Imagine that!

I’ve got a mailbox full of books this past week, so definitely keep an eye out for my Mailbox Monday.

Other than that I might be hit or miss and I apologize for that. But I am still here and will update as I can.

Happy reading and have a great week everyone!
